I wouldn´t anticipate too many tourist
arriving from Colombia anytime soon.
They took a massive economic hit with
the way they put the country under 24hr
lock down. I heard a few days ago about
80% of the businesses in different parts
of the country are permanently closed.

They will not be majority tourists traveling, but rather so called business persons who are trying to balance the scales of their respective global businesses/trades/dealings, which have also taken a hit during this Plandemic.

They are opening city by city with Cartagena first. I hear Medellin is slated to start opening Oct 1st for international flights. Cartagena is no longer on the 24/7 curfew but my friend who lives there tell me that now instead of the once a week ability to get out they are now on a every other day system based on even or odd last number in your cedula. He says that even though they don't have a curfew that the cops will hassle you if out after 10:00 p.m. After a 24/7 curfew since March it is surely not the same country.

You are correct. I have residency and family in Colombia and closing down of everything there has set that country back 10-20 years economically and it will take many years to right the ship. Much has been said about the economic damage and inconvenience the nighttime curfew has caused in the DR,try a 24 hour curfew and only being able to go out once a week for essencials,brutal.

A Venezuelan friend of mine is living in Medellin and I know several Colombians
living in Barranquilla. It´s been hell for all of them. I feel bad for the people living there.
